In class this week we will be practicing the following words for the Spelling Bee:
This week we began with some more work on rounding numbers, particularly applying this to real life contexts. We then moved onto some quite challenging work of adding and subtracting negative numbers. In order to help with this I have set the class some work on Mathletics which directly relates to what we have been working on in class. In literacy we looked at the characters of The Twits and began by describing their appearance, before moving on to thinking about writing with speech. Next week we shall be writing some Twit inspired stories. To end the week we had some fantastic weather at Ashdown forest and enjoyed making our own paints using plants and flowers that we collected throughout the day.
Have a lovely weekend.
This week in Sapphire class we have started our first English topic which has taken us into the magical world of Roald Dahl. As part of our learning this week we have focused on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and developing our language choices. On Wednesday we celebrated Roald Dahl's birthday by listening to some of his revolting rhymes and watching a live television broadcast. Over the next few weeks we shall be exploring some more of his stories and having a go at writing in his style.
In Maths, we have been re-capping place value as well as what happens when multiplying and dividing by 10, 100, 1000 and even 0.1 and 0.01.

I hope you all have had an enjoyable summer and are all refreshed for the new school year ahead. I will shortly be sending out a detailed letter explaining a few of the exciting topics things planned for this term, as well as some useful information about Sapphire Class. Over the next few days I will be busy setting the ground work for the year ahead with the class through a variety of 'welcome back activities' as well as carrying out some assessments to help me to see what they have remembered form last year. I look forward to meeting many of you over the next few weeks, if you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.
